>A Specific Request and a General Plea

The young man is this photo posted the following on his very public Facebook. This is a brave step by a teen who I’ve always thought had so much going for him if he’d just sell-out/surrender to Jesus. He requests prayer, and I ask you to pray for him…and all other students who want to pursue the Lord regardless of what their friends or others in their sphere of influence desire.

Here is his note:

“After many years of DOUBT and CONFUSION, I can finally say in CONFIDENCE that I am DEVOTED to and in LOVE with the one we call SAVIOR! =D Camp was truly a blessing this year for I called, He answered, and came to my MUCH NEEDED rescue. Please pray for me.. as it will be hard not to fall into my many temptations and most importantly because I FEAR God.”

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
